congressional correspondent mike emanuel joins us now for. the president and the senators are in washington. that would appear to be a good sign, is that correct? reporter: yes and no. the tone publicly has not been very good so far. we know that the president obama, on the way back from hawaii, worked the phones a bit, talking to the top four congressional leaders. speaker boehner, nancy pelosi, mitch mcconnell, and harry reid. earlier today, the senate majority leader sounded frustrated with the republicans in congress. >> nothing can move forward unless speaker boehner and mitch mcconnell are willing to come up with a bipartisan plan to participate. speaker boehner is unwilling to negotiate. we have not heard a word since neither mcconnell. nothing has happened. >> i should note that senator reid was due for a news conference later this afternoon. that has since been canceled. perhaps the senate majority leader has decided to do his talking behind closed doors and hammer out a deal. greg: filled with metaphors, no doubt. what a republican saying about the status of the fiscal cliff negot

, everyone. welcome to mornings on 2. it's saturday, december 29th. i'm mike mibach. >> i'm claudine wong. cool temperatures, even a little ice on top of mount hamilton. rosemary says it is damp outside, but how long will it last? >> we are seeing this system say good-bye to the bay area. through the morning hours, just the tail end of a few scattered showers falling from time to time. as claudine mentioned a moment ago, low snow with a mix of rain and snow falling over areas of mount hamilton, right along highway 130. pink mix will continue through the morning hours as well. on a widespread view, we are looking at just a few bits of rain falling from time to time. this morning, a cloudy start, the possibility of a few scattered showers will remain. it's a cold start out there as well. we'll be partly cloudy and cool for the afternoon and a high surf advisory for the entire coast lasting the entire day. i'll have a look at your numbers for you, coming up. >>> and happening now, there is a high surf advisory along bay area beaches and it comes on the heels of the tragic death of a man and

recommend his web site. i think mike at "the daily beast" has written about this. i know a lot of people have raised a lot of issues about that. host: david from "the washington post" writes in his column this morning -- what do you think of the sentiment that he writes about? guest: let me say this for the record. i am a big fan of his and his novels. if you ever want to read a great spy novel, i recommend his first novel. he writes in the beginning that this is a work of fiction. but the reason he writes that is because it is well known among people like myself that even though it is a fictional book, it covers a lot of the same bases as the cia but the relationship in the 1970's when they were considered a terrorist organization. he has some of the best sources in the intelligence community in washington. i do not share his optimism about the taliban. at this point, it would be great if there could be an understanding as the united states left and what the taliban's role would be in this new government. that wille necessarily work out at this point. it is a difficult problem, i think,
from mike out in florida. caller: good morning. i am a bit pessimistic. i believe that on c-span they had an economist on here explaining how americans do not understand the difference between millions, billions, in trillions. with the trillions of dollars in debt, he put it into the context of time. 1 million seconds will take 11 days to pass. 1 billion seconds will pass in 32 years. when trillion seconds will pass in 32,000 years. i think it is almost impossible to see how we will ever pay off this debt. that is all i have to say. host: that was mike from florida. plenty more time for your calls, facebook postings, and it tweets.- tonight on prime time we're going to sit down with a couple of retiring members of congress. dan burton and kent conrad. a little snippet from each interview. we will show you now congressman burton. [video clip] >> i would like for people to think, he might have been a bulldog, but he was a man who believed in honesty and integrity of things that were right for this country. regardless of how difficult it was, he kept to those principles. i hope

, boston post, and the wall street thurmont. mike is joining us from lafayette, louisiana, independent line. caller: good morning. you're talking about the need for special forces, working in conjunction with other nations' forces. are we running the risk of creating a u.n. special forces or creating a new world order special forces group? guest: well, they have many partners about the world now. this is one of the focal points of the new commander's efforts, to pull together regional alliances of special operators to help do some of these projects, which lessens the burden on the u.s. special operations forces who they have been operating at a very high temple for a decade. i will give you one quick example. there are a lot of nato and east european in new zealand, australia, other countries have sent special operations forces to afghanistan. they have been working over the last decade. they're not all doing the killing, capturing, hunting, the unilateral trade missions. many of them are partnered with these special provincial response companies. they are special police units in 17 of the
a wonderful christmas they spent together. mike thompson, a congressman from california, he's a democrat, he's the congressman who has the -- whose clinic for post traumatic stress syndrome, john hammer was a patient in. he served in iraq, in afghanistan, in a fierce fire fight in fallujah. and this rifle he was taking into mexico, he went to u.s. custom border patrol and registered it with them, they waited, they photographed it. they told him, sure, you can bring it into mexico. just register it. and it was when john was registering the firearm, he was arrested for his trouble, and he had been there since august, chained to his bed. a nightmare scenario, so the bipartisan group of legislators were able to get together to bring john hamer home, maybe we can fix the fiscal cliff problem. here is what we can. >> here is what john hammer's mom had to say about the homecoming, which was really a christmas gift to them. take a listen. >> it was like my first night that i slept all night long without getting up, and it was just the thought of not wondering what's going on with him, can anyone hur

. it's so offensive that director mike morell sent a letter to the agency's employees last friday telling them it's a dramatization, not a reality of the facts. the film creates the strong impression that enhanced interrogation teaching them. that impression is false. the film about osama bin laden has reignited debate over what the cia called enhanced interrogation was really torture. >> the information i saw derived from the detainees we had cia facilities and that including those who underwengt techniques was invaluable. >> president obama ended the use of enhancement techniques in 2009 and both parties have been trying to play down the impression that such methods led intelligence investigators to bin laden with senator john mccain speaking out last year before the film even hit the nation's theaters. >> i think it's supremely unfair to the men and women in our intelligence community and military who labored f a decade to locate obama bin laden to claim falsely that they only succeeded because we used torture. >> mccain with senators dianne feinstein and carl levin wrote to so

expressed by the then-director of the national intelligence mike mcconnell, the then-c.i.a. director michael hayden, the attorney general at the time, michael mukasey, as they discussed the consequences that we would have to deal with if we continued not to move forward and put this act back in place. the agreement we reached balanced the concerns of those who feared that the national security agency had overreached with the other balance was the ongoing authority that the intelligence community needed to protect the country. that agreement is before us again to be reauthorized for another five years. the fisa amendments act protects individuals in the united states from so-called reverse targeting. it's one of the concerns people had five years ago. this would be a process which in theory could be used to monitor the communications of american citizens under the guise of spying on terrorists. it also continues to ensure that any communication originating in the united states caught in the fisa process is minimized. now, what does that mean? it means it's handled in a way that american commu

a fiscal of deal, we want to look at other items this morning. this is from "the new york times." mike on the line for independents. your thoughts on that the senate negotiating the fiscal clift deal? caller: i would like to take a step back. this is a discussion on philosophies. i think the basic difference in philosophy between two parties. i think the solution really is to come up with an agreement that will make everybody equally unhappy and explain that this is for the benefit of all of our children. host: what would be an agreement that would make everybody unhappy? caller: if you told republicans there would be means testing and they are not going to get some of the benefits like medicare or social security because they have wealth in their lives, it would make them happy, but they could afford it. if you told democrats that we are going to cut some benefits to try to get the deficit under control -- if this other republicans are also taking cuts, maybe they would go along with the things. i think there are a lot of people in the system that the benefits that they do not need. h
